Indians’ Youth Surging at the Right Time

#453162164 / The Cleveland Indians are surging at the right time, and it’s all thanks to their youth. The Indians are currently 70-64 and sit just 3.5 games back of both the AL Central and the AL Wild Card spot leads. With 28 games left to play it is entirely possible that the Indians can make a postseason run in 2014. With the Royals starting to cool off and the...

August 2014 Player Power Rankings

The Indians had a generally positive month of August (17-9-1) and they did so despite being the fourth worst team in the Majors in terms of runs scored (just 3.7 per game). In order to win 65.4% of their games, the Indians pitching staff has had to have been fantastic and was even better. The team’s 2.40 staff ERA is the best in all of baseball for August, largely because the starting...

Photo by Chuck Crow, Plain Dealer However exciting the signing of Nick Swisher may have been back in December of 2012, the deal is now almost universally considered to be a bust.

In 2014, he was undoubtedly...
